Who are Heidi and Orville Thompson?
Heidi and Orville Thompson are the official owners of the Scentsy Family. They are the ones who have nourished the company into the success it is today. Usually when you get CEOs you never see them and they just collect on their paycheques and have no interest in what the 'troops' are doing on the ground level but this isnt the case with Heidi and Orville. They are VERY active in participating in Scentsy and when you join as a consultant you'll get to hear them speak and even meet them and take a picture every year at Convention. Listening to Orville and Heidi at Convention is always the highlight for me every year and I cant tell you how much what they've said has inspired me to be a better business woman for one but a better person as well.
This is one of my most favourite Convention talks by Heidi:
They are incredibly down to earth and approachable and they are very very generous. I'm friends with Heidi on Facebook and she's always taken the time to wish me a Happy Birthday or comment and acknowledge practically every comment made on her profile. I am pretty impressed with that as I'm sure she's incredibly busy but to have someone THAT important 'SEE YOU', well it for one doesnt happen that much and it makes you feel important too. Trying to help people has always been a big part of my heart but when I joined Scentsy its where I saw Generosity in action x10. Scentsy has also given me an opportunity to be generous with my team and my fellow Scentsy consultants and even to people I dont know through donating products or time or introducing them to the blessing of the Scentsy opportunity.
When I was initially looking into joining Scentsy, this is the video that made me certain that I had made the right decision. I was pretty impressed with Heidi's heart and a company that works so hard to make a difference in the community. I felt like this was something I wanted to be a part of too:
The Thompsons are parents of FIVE CHILDREN, yes FIVE so they understand about what its like to try to worry and provide for a family. Its common to see one of the Thompson children at a Scentsy event. I've met the oldest Sarah and she was just as interested in my life as her parents which is unusual for a young adult. Scentsy is a FAMILY business through and through and Conventions are called the Scentsy Family Reunion. The main business name for Scentsy is 'Scentsy Family'. Consultants (usually) help each other and encourage each other to succeed because like with any family, if one member is happy and does well....the entire family does well and thrives also.
The Thompsons are very successful business people and have held prestigious positions in the Direct Selling Association and received numerous numerous awards for their work. However they dont wear these accolades on their sleeves, its just an after fact really. When you meet them they are humble and they have such a sense of gratitude for where they've been and where they are now.
I have a lot of hopes for myself and my Scentsy business to be able to finally provide for myself and have that financial independence I've craved for so long. I'm just incredibly grateful that the kind of people like the THompsons (and of course the rest of the home office staff) are leading Scentsy and helping to encourage, inspire and support consultants like myself. I feel grateful and blessed for this opportunity to change and improve my life and to be a part of this family.
I would love to have you in our family as well? Interested in joining Scentsy? Contact me today or request your Free Info pack (see home page) for the FAQ answered on becoming a consultant.
